“People have the opinions that there should be less teams. But we need to find a solution and work towards it together to make cricket a global sports and not have just 8-12 countries compete all the time and be happy with that. From the time first World Cup in 1975 till now there are only 9-12 teams that compete for the World Cup. If we don’t take steps towards globalizing the sport it is never going to happen.”
“The ICC should make more efforts to involve more countries in 50 over World Cup so that they can get exposure to play with worlds best teams. Sachin Tendulkar said by playing in the US it will help the people to know more about the game and inspire many people to take interest in the game.”
